Manchester City the table topper are marching on the top because of their dominating display since the start of the season with a 2-1 win over Sunderland, clinching a massive 4-1 victory away from home at the Britania Stadium against Stoke City,and a 3-1 Home victory at the Etihad against West Ham are the Manchester City’s Dominant Display.

Manchester United vs Man City clash would be like two massive stars colliding with each other
Team News: Man United vs Man City
Manchester United has a complete Fit Squad Just Fellaini is in doubt to be included in this massive Fixture. The Manchester United Defensive midfielder seems to have some back pain issues and not completely fit but can feature as a Substitute in this Match. As its a Big game for both the teams the Defenders had to probably play a key role and would go for a Clean sheet.
Left Back Luke Shaw and Centre back Valencia are in Sublime form with excellent attacking work rate. Eric Bailly and Blind are covering the Technical areas and giving a Tough day for any striker.
Manchester City has a couple of key players injured, Bacary Sagna and Vincent Kompany won’t feature in this Manchester Derby encounter as Sagna is out because of a physical knock and Kompany has Thigh Injury. Aguero is also not fully fit for the match and could feature as a substitute as he is facing a Calf Injury. The German signings Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gündogan are the great additions to this side but won’t be available this moment. Gündogan has severe Knee injury and is expected to return until 17 September.
